3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask - Planet Thanet Festival 2010, Margate. Poured a dark brown with a fine bubbly beige head. Smokey and roasty malt aromas backed by light chocolate notes and a hint of raisin. Similar flavours, more prominent dark fruit notes. I felt the body let it down slightly, light and a bit on the watery side with an ok finish.
